So this scenario is based on the El Teb scenario in the Black Powder rule book. We had a blast. It was Matt V's first time he played in a Colonial game and it didn't go well for him but he had fun. And knowing Matt, the next time we play his tactics will definitely be different. Its not easy for someone that plays Civil War, Nappy and Ancients to catch on to Colonial combat. Like the question he asked me said it all, "Dan, do you form square against these Mahdist?" As we all know, squares work great against Cavalry but Dervish? If your not used to it you have a way of learning quickly in the desert! You will see what happens to his Sudanese troops in this battle. It was very entertaining (lol).
Well again, I captioned all the pictures. I had a great time putting this on for our club event. Oh we also had Jeff G. join us for this battle. I was glad he could join us. Emir's Jeff, John "Mumbasa" and Aaron took command of the Mahdist forces and Colonel's Matt and Nate the British and Egyptian forces.
The mission was to attack and clear the sangars (defensive positions) and capture the Khalifa,the defender of the faithful. So as they say, it so happened that the hunter became the hunted. Take a look.
